We could very well be seeing the initial events that will thrust the world into a “Prophetic War” mentioned in Psalm Chapter 83, Speaking of an Islamic Confederation that would come against Israel to attempt wipe her from the face of the Earth. Speculation continues to abound as to what Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas will say during his speech at the United Nations General Assembly on Wednesday. Mahmoud Habbash, Abbas’s confidant and a former minister of religious affairs, had previously threatened a “bombshell” would be dropped at the UN by Abbas but appears to have scaled back such rhetoric as the day of the speech approaches. Analysts speculate that much of Abbas speech will focus on the Oslo accords and Palestinian demands that Israel meet it’s obligations from the accord. At the center of Palestinian demands will be that all Israeli building expansion in Judea and Samaria be frozen in order to move forward with negations.
How far Abbas will go in his threats if Israel does not meet his demands remains to be seen but it is presumed the Palestinians have reached a tipping point after almost a year of no negotiations at all. Even the World Bank warned this week that the status quo between the two sides was unsustainable and there was a “high risk” of renewed conflict. It is believed Abbas will give the US one last chance to take a direct role in moving forward with peace negotiations but expectations will be high for a clear path to Palestinian Statehood and that the US will not oppose proposals in the UN Security Council that establish such a path – including resolutions that call for an end to “Israeli occupation”. According to Palestinian sources Secretary of State John Kerry has indicated he is open to moving forward with negotiations but not until they have finalized everything with the Iranian nuclear accords. This time frame is estimated to take another 6 months. FULL REPORT
